My biggest challenge at first was being told that I couldn’t play sports and needed to take it easy until I did a stress test and was properly medicated.
While these four letters, CPVT, have changed my life they have not stopped me from being an active teenager. I encourage you to get genetic testing if you have had symptoms or if you have a family history of heart issues. Also, see an electrophysiologist and get on the right medication for you. I’m on medication, have a Loop Recorder, and an AED, which gives me the opportunity to play sports and enjoy life!
Since my scary event and getting my diagnosis I have learned the importance of CPR and AEDs. I encourage everyone to be trained because you never know whose life you might save because you know how to do CPR and use an AED.
